** Official Petition ** Dedi Servers and Mod Tools for PC

 -----------------

After a lengthy webcast on BASHandSlash Infinity Ward's community manager, Robert Bowling, confirmed that dedicated servers for the PC community will be dropped in favour of IWNet, a matchmaking service provided by Infinity Ward. The announcement was met with disappointment as BASHandSLASH (via Kotaku) moderators told Bowling that the current PC communities are "structured in such a way that it relied on having dedicated servers," meaning there is no interest in changing the way matchmaking works and that the community are happy with its current set up.

The new system proposed for IWNet means the matchmaking service will run along side Steam (which has been making all the news headlines this week) and will match you up with players of your rank. It will also mean there are "no dedicated server list[s]," and that you'll rely on IWNet for "matchmaking and your games, but you still have your private matches," according to Bowling. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 The main concern for community and clan members is that the ability to customise games in a hosted or modded game could be coming to an end. There will be hardly any control over any matches, making the service feel more akin to the likes of console gaming, according to Josh Pickler of planetmedalofhonor.com. "The server community is what's made us. It's what defined us," he said, going on to say that "IWNET is getting the PC community to turn into consoles. You're trying to re-write our history." The system seems to mirror that of Battlenet, currently being implemented by Blizzard for all of its products, and will allow community managers and developers to track, learn and better service the PC community. "From a development standpoint, it's very good on how we can access and update the PC community. "I know the team has huge plans for what IWNet develops into, and this is just the beginning. It's hard for me to speak personally towward IWNet, because that is a code heavy project," said Bowling. So, again, PC gamers...thoughts?

Wow that's a shame. PC gamers live and die by their customizable dedicated servers.

Alot of people that Pre-Ordered the game have got their money back and are awaiting final word on what IW plans to do about this. This will kill the PC version of the game for sure. The Match making system reminds me of Left 4 Dead. And I got tired of that after a few times of getting booted by retarded players. IMHO Left 4 Dead would have been better with a Dedicated server, but it only works for them because there are only a limited number of players needed to play a level. In COD it's much more fun to have 40 to 50+ players with CTF!

I sleep fine at night knowing we are banning people who deserve it.  Tivon
